Team Grasshopper is a small (but growing) group of experienced communications professionals, headed up by directors Clare Jones and Jo Hatton Jones.
Looking after our team, in our view, is key to ensuring we can provide a great service to our clients – and we offer a range of employee benefits including flexible working, CPD and training, and a personal development allowance.
We strive to be a forward-thinking company with a focus on sustainability in the way we operate - and are committed to operating in a fair and ethical way, for example we are a Real Living Wage employer as well as a member of Cynnal Cymru (Sustain Wales).
We are a member of the Public Relations and Communications Association (PRCA) and Public Affairs Cymru, ensuring we commit to the highest ethical and professional standards in the communications and political engagement work we undertake.
We recently won the Wales Business Insider Property Awards – Consultancy of the Year 2018 award - following the rapid growth of the team and a number of high profile and successful projects completed in 2017/2018.
